"Meet Me In California" as written by Tom Higgenson and Chris Tompkins....
I knew that this was wrong as I
Stood reaching for the bedroom light
But she turned me on
So I turned it off
Now every man has got his flaws
His breaking point, his sacred cause
And I had mine
But I crossed that line
Now I could never ask you to
Forgive me for the things I do
But if you ever need me
You know where I'll be

[Chorus]
Meet me in California
I'll be there waiting for your call
I'll be there waiting for you
'Cause you know in California
There's something better for us all
Meet me in California

This night was like a bible verse
With pages torn and missing words
Condemning me

And I'm on my knees
I wish that I could start again
Peel the past like sunburned skin
Right off of me

Now I could never ask you to
Forgive me for the things I do
But if you ever need me
You know where I'll be

[Chorus]

I don't wanna say goodbye
And I don't wanna make you cry
I just wanna see you smile again

'Cause everything I used to be
Is waiting over there for me
This is a beginning not an end

Now I could never ask you to
Forgive me for the things I do
But if you ever need me
You know where I'll be

[Chorus]

Oh, oh, I'll be there waiting for you
'Cause you know in California
There's something better for us all
Meet me in California.

    General Commenthes basicly saying. forgive me for what i did to you. But if you dont, i understand. And that hes going to leave to Ca. and she should came with him to start over: "I wish that I could start again
    Peel the past like sunburned skin" but if she dosent wont to go then its okay. he just wont to be there for her no matter what: "Now I could never ask you to
    Forgive me for the things I do
    But if you ever need me
    You know where I'll be

    Meet me in California
    I'll be there waiting for your call"
